characters Jude the Obscure characters Jude the Obscure 107 Ason Jude meets and falls in love with his cousin Sue Bridehead a sensitive freethinking 'New Woman. 355To read of Tess or Jude I was completely undecided so took the action of a coin toss to decide for meProblem had not a penny in my pocket so whisked out a visa card and launched it across the room Frontside up TessBackside up JudeJude it was thenDon t worry Tess you will have your day He might have won my card toss but there is no winning in Hardy s final novel A novel of such bleak and devastating intensity it s little wonder he finally called it a day Stirring up a feeling of failure and disappointment in life the protagonist Jude Fawley is a scholarly chap who aspires from an early age to study in the university town of Christminster situated in Hardy s fictional county of Wessex become a clergyman and distinguish himself in the worldBut two women would enter his life Arabella and cousin Sue to ruin everythingHis tragic story moved me in such a way that was almost unbearable too painful to comprehend the light at the end of the tunnel didn t even exist Jude is brought up by his old Aunt and is devoted to a local schoolmaster Phillotson and dreams of following in his footsteps after he moves to the Oxford like town of Christminster He builds a fantasy life for himself and believes this is based on his entire destiny well that is until the selfish Arabella Donn enters the frame followed by unhappy Sue Bridehead What happens next we have murder suicide failed marriage a miscarriage deathly illness and loss of faith could a novel be depressingHardy skewers the cruelty and hypocrisy of the way society works He shows how even in moments when men attempt to do something about the injustice of it all they end up merely papering over the problem so that they don t have to see what s amissI have to say it s very well written and clearly see why Hardy is regarded so highly you take all three central characters to heart it s impossible not to and his portrayal of the villages and countryside evokes such feelings within however I am unconvinced that Hardy s critiues of Christianity and marriage are altogether just and reasonable but do recognize the truth for love in the hearts of Sue and Jude through their anguish and hopelessness their anxiety and griefOf the other earthy characters in it dare I say they actually made me laugh at times but generally any cheerfulness is on a very small level to say the leastAs for Hardy s career as a novelist it s a shame that he ended it so soon he here proves himself to be one of the great creators of complex characters with emotionally devastating problems grabbing the readers attention in a very short period of time I didn t think it was the masterpiece some might see it as but did leave a very strong impression on meI even felt sorry for the Pig
